Woodland Foxgloves

at a gnarled oak’s knee…

The garden of landscape architect Paolo Pejrone

in Piedmont, Northern Italy….

Watercolor of Snowdrops…

A new find….

Detail of 19th century French Aubusson painting

Water color and goauche on paper

Relatively small… about 10 X 24 inches…

But precious details of birds, swirls, roses, poppies, pinks….

Floriferous detail of

oil on canvas Aubusson painting

Gardening notebook of the legendary

Vita Sackville-West…love the “ravishly” note

on the fold down at top…

Flora Danica luncheon plate

Handpainted perfection…

Carolyn Quartermaine….

handpainted flower on seat back…

My garden…starting….

Alliances and intrusions…

The self seeding poppy popping up in front of the

variegated swords of Palladian Iris…

The wanton creep of lambs ears

A neat row of redirected poppies that had

sprung up on the garden path…

now toe the line at the voluminous skirts

of self seeding foxgloves that sashayed in over winter

Erigeron…aka Santa Barbara Daisy…

boundless on the borders of  lovely stone steps…

Also from Paolo Pejrone’s home…
